According to published reports supported by on-site witnesses, the Venezuelan National Guard is still holding in custody a Portuguese-registered Citation X seized last October. The anti-drug command reported it found about 880 pounds of cocaine on board the business jet, which reportedly had flown from Mexico and stopped in Caracas for fuel before a planned transatlantic flight to South Africa. Six Portuguese and two Venezuelans were arrested.
